How do you verify the weight loss?

For all official weigh-ins, you'll be prompted to submit your official starting weight. Our standard weigh-in process involves you submitting 2 photos: one of you standing on a scale in lightweight clothing (no shoes, hats, belts, watches, coats, or outerwear), and another of the scale’s readout with your weigh-in word written on a piece of paper.

What you'll need

  • A scale (preferably digital)
  • A digital camera or smartphone
  • A full-length mirror or someone to take your photo

I’m not a winner but I lost 1.2lbs & I’m on track now for my other 3 db’s ending in about 2 weeks. 1.4lbs to go is very do-able.
Congrats to all the winners!

I love you Thomas! Your attitude is amazing!

I met this goal over a week ago. It’s the 4% in 4 weeks that have me totally sweating though.

Not looking good! I regret those night time snack binges! Good luck to all!

    This just flipped on me. My Every Other Day Fasting got switched on me this morning as I fell off the schedule and snacked last night when I should have just gone to bed. That is okay, I'm back on a schedule, but it has me fasting today and Sunday. ARGH! But probably for the best as I will definitely NOT over eat on Sunday this way.

    With 2 weigh-ins this weekend looming (7-8) (10-11) I need to remain focused if I am going to make weight. I've been way over for some time and now I have several pounds to shred to beat my Challenges.

    Good Luck all and GO CHIEFS!

It was a bit of a heart breaker. Patrick threw a few amazingly valiant passes midst-sack which I very much wished had been caught.

Today is my official STAY AWAY FROM THE JAN 1 TRANSFORMER DAY. With the low payout for Round 1, meaning a lot of winners, and the ignorant people that don’t read the game rules, I’m afraid I’d rip somebody’s head off if I were to go in there.

That and I had a horrible day at work.

I’m off to go pound out some miles on my bike and spend some time in Prayer for a better day tomorrow.
